Digital Annealer

FUJITSU Quantum-inspired Computing Digital Annealer shows the ability to a solution of the combinatorial optimization problem,which is difficult to calculate for the enormous amount of calculation.

What is Digital Annealer

Digital Annealer is a new technology to solve large-scale combinatorial optimization problems instantly. It uses a digital circuit design inspired by quantum phenomena, and can solve problems which is tough for classical computers to deal with.

The most practical computer to solve combinatorial optimization problems for business

  • Faster Molecule Similarity Search

    Chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories use molecule similarity searching, which partially extracts molecules’ characteristics, to search for new substances and to develop new drugs. Digital Annealer can search entire molecular structures without relying on extraction, thereby enabling accurate, instant similarity searching.

  • Low-risk, Diversified Investment

    Digital Annealer can find the ideal investment allocation to maximize returns by grouping stocks that correlate with price variations, thus optimizing portfolios and reducing risk. Digital Annealer can find the best permutation from among 20 or more stock names (equivalent to more than one quintillion permutations) instantly.

  • Optimized In-stock Part Placement

    In factories and distribution warehouses, the time it takes workers to walk around picking parts can be minimized by optimizing work routes and in-stock part placement. In fact, introducing Digital Annealer in Fujitsu group factories successfully reduced workers travel distance by 45 percent each month, increasing productivity significantly.

  • Personalized Digital Marketing Ads

    Digital marketing accuracy can be improved by delivering precise individually personalized content to webpage visitors, thereby increasing their willingness to buy. Digital Annealer allows instant display of customized content by providing data (such as age or gender) for each webpage element.

Business Insight

Harnessing quantum to build the computers of the future
Quantum computing is moving from physics theory to business reality. 1QBit CEO Andrew Fursman outlines how the promised surge in processing power could help solve some of the world’s most intractable problems.

Applications of Digital Annealer

  • Route optimization: Finding the shortest path; ideal for searching quickest routes and public transportation
  • Identify network design problems: Designing optimal networks for communication networks, oil and gas pipelines
  • Optimizing delivery plans: Ideal for postal services and logistics services
  • Optimized placement of in-stock parts: In factories, stores and distribution warehouses
  • Optimized scheduling: For addressing factory worker shifts, sports tournament brackets
  • Disaster recovery planning: Providing an efficient and quick recovery, rescue and aid plan

Collaboration with Top-tier Global Partners

Fujitsu has established strategic partnership agreements with 1QBit (a Canadian company), the only vendor of commercial quantum computer software at the moment, and the University of Toronto, an internationally top-tier innovation hub.

Fujitsu Digital Annealer solution uses 1QBit software and its quantum algorithms that has become a standard in quantum computing.

This makes adopting and leveraging the benefits of Digital Annealer by customers currently researching or using quantum computers easy. There is no need to tweak applications.

  • Fujitsu Opens New Research Lab in Toronto to Accelerate Social Implementation of Digital Annealer
    On March 14, 2018 at the University of Toronto, Fujitsu held the opening ceremony of Fujitsu Co-Creation Research Laboratory at the University of Toronto. It is Fujitsu’s new research hub that will accelerate the research of innovative computing including Digital Annealer.
  • The world’s only vendor of commercial quantum computer software (as of December 2017) 2015 Technology Pioneer Award winner at the World Economics Forum

Of course, our relationship with Fujitsu is real honor for all of us here 1QBit. 1QBit has been working with a number of companies focused on producing quantum hardware, but the Fujitsu digital annealer is one of the first pieces of really usable hardware that can leverage all of the research that 1QBit has engineered over the past four years
